Ken Jennings, Classic American
Still, one cannot deny, as we move closer to Independence Day 2008, that Ken is still one of the Classic Americans. He revealed the truth that Jeopardy! is not so much a so-called 'game show' as it is a window on our world. Every day, six days a week, Jeopardy!'s writers explore every known reference book and informational website imaginable to secure answers for future episodes; more times than on any given day, the program is made available to educators for classroom use; and more than once, the Jennings story has been the subject of a few hilarious spoofs, be it on Saturday Night Live or Mad TV. Regardless, Ken Jennings' story is one of the classic American sagas --- so, if I were you, I would go out and buy one or all of Ken's books. I'm sure that he has plenty of exciting things to tell you about our world and our various places therein.
Why do you think, my dears, that I have, partly thanks to YouTube, rediscovered Al Hamm's news package theme, Move Closer to Your World? We all recall the groove it gave us when WPIX had it as the theme for what was then its 10 o'clock Action News; these days, the only place you'll hear it now is on Philadelphia's WPVI/ABC6HD. Moving closer to one's world has worked wonders for many of us in this day and age; I suspect it'll work for your Dragonmaster as well.
